A CREW member on Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg’s new movie, Me Time, was “seriously injured” on Tuesday.
A male stage technician had a “long fall” from up to 30 feet and was taken to a trauma center for treatment, Deadline reported.
The injured person’s condition is currently unknown as he continues to receive medical treatment.
A 911 call was placed on Tuesday morning to report that a major accident had occurred at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood, California.
An LAFD spokesperson could only confirm that the fall happened “at or near” the studio, but sources told the outlet that the accident took place at Stage 12, where Me Time is being filmed.
ACCIDENT ON SET
The accident is believed to have involved “a male stage technician in his 30s” falling from a station placed as high as 30 feet above the stage.
According to TMZ, paramedics had to use a defibrillator on the injured person to revive his heartbeat after he didn’t have a pulse and CPR was being performed.
He reportedly had “fractures to his legs and arms,” with his condition going from “grave” to “critical” after his heartbeat returned.
Netflix’s Me Time follows “a stay-at-home dad (Kevin) who finds himself with some ‘me time’ for the first time in years while his wife and kids are away.”
The synopsis continues: “He reconnects with his former best friend (Mark) for a wild weekend that nearly upends his life.”
Kevin’s upcoming comedy for Netflix comes after he left viewers sobbing ‘in the first 10 minutes’ with his last movie for the service, Fatherhood, in which he plays a widowed dad.
Kevin showed a totally different side as Matt, whose wife dies after an unexpected early Caesarean section followed by Pulmonary embolism.
A shell-shocked Matt is left to raise his daughter Maddy alone, aside from the help and support of his friends, and it made for an emotional watch.
Taking to Twitter, fans of the film admitted they were in floods of tears just moments into it.
One wrote: “Man @KevinHart4real really didn’t have to do me like this… I’m balling within 10 minutes of #FatherhoodNetflix.”
Another added: “10 minutes in and I’m already crying #FatherhoodNetflix.”
A third tweeted: “I’m 20 mins into #FatherhoodNetflix and I had to pause because I couldn’t stop sobbing.”
They weren’t alone as a fellow viewer wrote: “Oh my god I’m sobbing!
@KevinHart4real is so good in this! Pleading faceLoudly crying face #FatherhoodNetflix.”
The film is based on the 2011 memoir Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love by Matthew Logelin.
